MMAFighting.com photographer, Esther Lin, was on the scene at Portage Place from Edmonton Court in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, earlier today (June 12, 2013) to shoot several notable mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters at the UFC 161: "Evans vs. Henderson" open media workouts.
Unnaturally, the two men who will collide in the main event of the evening, former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Rashad Evans and ex-division No. 1 contender, Dan Henderson, were not on the scene to promote their 205-pound showdown this weekend (Sat., June 15, 2013) LIVE on pay-per-view (PPV).
The two fighters who will co-headline the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) event -- Stipe Miocic vs. Roy Nelson -- were also not among "The Peg" contingent required to be photo friendly, particularly "Big Country," who may seek employment elsewhere after Saturday night (see why here).
Who was there?
Ryan Jimmo, Alexis Davis, Pat Barry, Shawn Jordan, Sam Stout, Sean Pierson, Roland Delorme, Mitche Clarke and Yves Jabouin, were in attendance to work up one of the last few real sweats prior to fight night.
Better than nothing.
Remember: MMAmania.com will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 161 fight card on fight night (June 15, 2013), starting with the Facebook "Prelims," which are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. ET, right on through the FX-televised under card bouts at 8 p.m. ET and then main card PPV action, which is slated to begin at 10 p.m. ET.
